Delivering generosity

Just a reminder to the community that the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive will be taking place Saturday, May 13. This will be the 25th year of the NALC’s “Stamp Out Hunger” national food drive. Your letter carrier will be collecting non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and in the post office for the Food Pantries of the Salvation Army and the Emergency Food Box. This effort by members of the National Association of Letter Carriers and other volunteers is the largest one-day food drive in the nation.

Please help by placing your “non-perishable” food items next to your mailbox before your letter carrier delivers mail on the 13th (Please check the dates on donated food items to be sure they have not yet expired. Be sure boxed/bagged items are sealed and cans have not been damaged). If you have any questions regarding this year’s drive, call the post office or either of the food pantries.

Last year, 10,410 pounds of food was collected in the Marshalltown area. All donated food was given out in Marshall County and was truly appreciated by the recipients. Help make 2017 even better by your participation in this very special project.

We sincerely thank YOU for your help and generosity!
